ntuser.dat x2 with only 1 user, i think im infected!!!

Posted: 01-01-2009, 10:21 AM

happy new year friends, i just formatted my comp & before i did i ran
scans with spy-bot, win Onecare & McAfee just to make sure i had no
infections. I also made sure i updated all antispyware & virus app &
then did my scans whilst i was disconnected from the net. After i
reinstalled, i installed Acronis Image Home11, which B4 i have installed
with no prob's, but this time i decided to installed Acronis for my user
only but when i installed the app it did not appear nowhere, so i
decided to check my setting and found that i had two ntuser.DAT files. i
know ntuser is an important file and shouldn't be deleted, but what if i
only have one user on my PC, and my account is admin. the files are
(1st) ntuser.DAT @ 256KB & the other ntuser.DAT is 0 bytes, I'm not sure
but i think i might be infected, can any1 assist.

Thanks
